Resource Guide for Veterans

In Eastern Michigan, there is a strong and interconnected community supporting the men and women who serve and have served our country. We believe veterans deserve our gratitude and support for their dedication and service. That’s why SSR Law Office has produced this Veterans Resource Guide.

The purpose of this guide is to provide information on nonprofit and governmental resources to retired or serving veterans and/or military personnel in Macomb, Oakland, Wayne, Monroe, St. Clair, Lapeer, Livingston, Washtenaw, Genesee and surrounding counties. It is our intent that this information will empower and support the men and women who serve and have served our country.

Many organizations provide support to veterans. These services include housing, food programs, educational opportunities, counselling and legal help. We hope you find the following Veterans Resource Guide useful and comprehensive.

Alcohol, Drugs & Rehab

Many Macomb County veterans suffer from alcohol and drug abuse. The abuses can be associated with many other situations in any particular vet’s life, but nonetheless these issues must be faced with forthright determination. Any type of addiction is tough to overcome, but alcohol and drugs can be some of the toughest forms of addiction. This is why it’s best to seek out help when you’re ready to begin your recovery process.

Whether it’s depression, anxiety, PTSD or any kind of psychological problem, many veterans need therapy to help hash out their problems. It makes sense that there are an endless amount of therapy resources that veterans can utilize, but so many veterans don’t utilize these resources enough. If you or a loved one is a veteran who is struggling you need to understand all of the resources that are out there to help veterans overcome just about anything.

This section is a comprehensive overview of what you’ll need to know in terms of how veterans can get the help they need for alcohol and drug addiction treatments. If you know where to go in your area, who to speak to and if you’re ready to face your alcohol and drug problems, you’ll be much more prepared for a successful recovery and sobriety.  

Don’t let drugs and alcohol get in your way of being the best version of yourself. The following information is here to help you help yourself. Always know, there is someone out there who really wants to help you. All you need to do is reach out.

Depression & Counseling

ssr-law-office-clinton-township-mi-veterans-guide-counseling

Depression is an emotional disease that has become more prevalent and more frequently diagnosed amongst all Americans in recent years. For veterans, depression has been a serious issue for as long as there has been war. Being a member of the armed forces teaches you a lot about yourself and life in general, but there are many aspects of the armed forces that can’t help you re-adjust your life post-service.

Veterans everywhere suffer from depression that’s unique to themselves and different from most people. Veterans should never have to face their depression alone. This section is here to help veterans better understand the resources that are available to them in terms of treating depression and getting their lives back in order.

Depression is debilitating for everyone because of how psychologically profound its effects can be on the human mind and body. Treatment is crucial for you or your loved one who has shown symptoms of depression.

Don’t let depression take control of you and your life, and let the Macomb County resources in this section help you take back your life from this harmful disease to a feeling of pure vitality.

Educational Programs & Training

Getting a decent job can be tough for everyone, and for veterans it can be even tougher since much of their time has been spent with the military and not necessarily in the professional business sector. Of course, this doesn’t mean that veterans can’t get good jobs, it’s quite the contrary. Finding the perfect fit that’s meant for each and every veteran is always a struggle, just like it is for everyone else.

If you’re a veteran in Eastern Michigan who’s having trouble finding the right professional fit then you’re not alone. This is why it’s so important to use the veterans resources that are available to you which can help you out with employment.

We understand struggles with money and your overall livelihood is stressful, and that’s why we are here to help you utilize this information and get to the resources that can help you receive the benefits, career coaching, training, professional recruitment and ultimately the consistent compensation that you deserve.

ssr-law-office-clinton-township-mi-veterans-guide-homeless

There are many housing resources for veterans in every city across the country, and it’s no secret that homelessness amongst veterans is a growing problem in our society. But that’s all beginning to change in recent years because the government is taking a strong effort into getting veterans off the streets and into the proper housing facilities with the right resources to help struggling veterans get their lives back on track.

You don’t have to be homeless to utilize the housing resources that are available to Macomb County veterans. Many times veterans simply need help moving and getting themselves in the right house or apartment in their city of choice. Don’t let anything hold you back in terms of housing and rent prices because the resources that are available to all veterans can help you get more affordable housing or decreases in your monthly bills to stay in the home you live in now.

By going through this resource section, you’ll better understand everything that is available to veterans in terms of housing, and this is something that can really be beneficial for all veterans of all income levels.

Healthcare 

There are many ways in which veterans can get incredible healthcare, and it’s a shame that not enough veterans know everything they should in terms of the coverage they innately can receive. All veterans have put in the sacrifice and commitment to the United States that enables them to get the treatment they need when they are sick or injured, which is a great benefit that veterans receive, but it’s also very complicated.

Getting through the hoops and bounds of the medical field is tough for everyone, and it’s no different for Macomb County veterans. Veterans have a good amount of resources to help them out in terms of healthcare and medicaid planning.

This section is designed to help all veterans and their families better understand the healthcare resources that are available to them in their local area. No matter what happens to veterans or their loved ones, they’ll be more prepared to handle any medical situation with less stress.

Legal Assistance

Many veterans don’t realize that there are a good amount of resources for them when it comes to legal assistance. If you or a loved one is in some kind of legal trouble, they need to know their special rights that can help them get out of trouble more easily, or get the type of professional help that is especially allotted to them.

Getting in any kind of legal matter is stressful for everyone, but veterans have undergone one of the most stressful commitments any American can ever undergo, and that commitment to serve allows them to go through legal matters with less stress.

Don’t let any legal matter develop without knowing your rights as a veteran. By going through this section, you’ll better understand all of the Macomb County legal assistance resources that are available to veterans.
